From: FREE

This single pattern is available as a download.

For this pattern I used:

Yarn & Amounts: Three 50g balls of Soft Donegal (100% Merino Wool, 63m/68yds per 50g).

Metres: 189m.

Needles: 6mm.

Tension: 18 stitches and 18 rows to 10cm/4ins square over pattern using 6mm needles.

Measurements: Approx. 16cm wide x 110cm long.

My design ideas and advice: I named this pattern after a the name of a street I lived on as a child. It was called Tory because it was on a very steep hill, with rumours that some of the houses tunnelled into the rock behind the houses. Tor is old English for rock or hill and these little stitches look like little hills so I thought it was the perfect name for it. I love this pattern. It is a design I knitted years before I wrote a pattern for it. I used to wear it and received lots of compliments for it, so decided to write and publish the pattern for others to enjoy! I’m knitting it in another shade, a colourful one, and I can’t wait to finish it and wear it.
